Description

Short-sleeved shirtdress with a small flat collar and calf-length skirt with two inverted pleats on the front (and possibly the back). The dress also includes a border on the collar and sleeve cuffs, and what appears to be long tucks extending from the top of the shoulders to below the waistline. The dress is worn with "Mary Jane" heels and appears to have some sort of small horizontal fastenings instead of traditional buttons along the bodice.
